Popis The purpose of this study was to find out the relationship between elite male and female throwers through the anthropometric characteristics and somatotype depending on each discipline. The sample consists of 28 elite female throwers and of 25 elite male throwers from the Czech Republic. The result of this study indicates the relationship between anthropometrics characteristics and performance in the men hammer and javelin throwers. The results show apparent similarities in the somatotype of the group of shot putters, hammer, and discus throwers compared to javelin throwers in both sexes. The anthropometrics measures and somatotype are an important factor in the correct determining of throwing talents in these disciplines. These measures can be useful for later comparisons of anthropometric characteristics and somatotype in a long-term context.
